Came down to the 113 final match as Piedmont was behind. Funderburk gets 5 points for the team with tech fall to surge ahead for a close 29-27 final score. Orange had a 10 point lead going into the final matches at 285, 106, and 113. Tough odds to overcome but all three kids let it all hang out.
Orange had another fabulous year. You have to give respect to the Orange kids as they just keep reloading year after year. Head Coach Bobby Shriner is one of the best coaches in North Carolina wrestling history with over 600 wins and 28 years at Orange.
Coach Jamie Belk wins yet another title while at Piedmont. Belk is one of the best strategy coaches in North Carolina. Congrats Piedmont on an outstanding season and performance today.
